With ideas we grow

Inesto invites change-makers from all over Europe to participate in the second part of a placemaking journey with the Erasmus+ Training Program.


The Ideas We Grow It is a training course focused on empowering youth workers with the skills and tools needed to help young people in rural communities turn their ideas into cooperative actions that drive positive change; it will gather 28 youth workers from Italy, Spain,  France, Turkey, Portugal, Ireland, and Poland and it will happen in Sicily, Italy from the 8th to the 14th March 2024.

The program aims to strengthen the capacity of youth organizations working in rural areas through developing expertise in design thinking methodologies, community engagement strategies, and environmental sustainability practices.

This 6-day program is the second part of our placemaking journey for rural areas, following our first training on becoming a Village Facilitator. Participants will build on the skills and network developed previously to foster creativity, entrepreneurship, and well-being of young people through community-led sustainable development.
